I got mine from Wholesale Marine but I think I got screwed on shipping. It was like $12 shipping for a $14 16oz bottle. I'd try getting it from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0004E...82&vs=1&sr=8-1

Hopefully the shipping is better on there. I'm gonna do the whole top today and see how well this stuff works!

No problem. I like this stuff because of doesn't leave that glossy shine that other stuff does. Here is the comparison of my sail panel to the rest of the top. I just sprayed it on and rubbed it with a wash cloth

Set pinion angle.
Secured control arms.
Rear Tracbar installed.
Installed rear swaybar.
Bled brakes.

Was going to take it on a drive but it started down pouring before I could get the shocks set up.

So busy last few days, dont have pics of when I repainted the steering but, it just looks clean and black now... simple. as for the other mods I got into.

Did the clamp mod to my sway bar so it won't offcenter anymore. it kept doing it.



Relocated 3rd brake light... to center cap.



The wooden softball bat mod:



Dring reciever, I painted the pin for the Dring black the rest was powder coated, very nicely in fact. Also picked up a locking hitch pin which I painted. It was chrome



Added this box to hold my spare tools that dont go in one of my tool boxes, and whatever else I need to put in. Its kinda vintage looking and locks, pretty cool. I have it set up so the lit just pulls off the top instead of hinging. Cause I would have had to mount it higher for it to open.



Added a "WF" decal, no pics though.

I did a few other maintainence things, got measurements for the sliders I am gona build. and just took care of her. I think she liked the attention.

What I did to my TJ this weekend

Just added a Smittybuilt Swing out tire carrier and bumper to carry my 33" spare tire..... Also added a 3rd light to my center cap hole which looks pretty sweet at night.

Bumper was easy to install and fit was okay... Few mods as usual to make it all come together cleanly.

Drove it... OFF ROAD!

Had a blast on the trails here in Raleigh. It was the first time my father has been. Needless to say he is hooked. He's considering "Jeep ownership". lol

That is a very large tire.

It might be the silver wheel because my tire doesn't look nearly as big!

That ^ and I think he just got it at a really good angle to where it looks like it's at the same height as the roll bar. But if you look left and right it's still within tailgate sizing.

It looks bigger because on swing out tire carriers, the tire is higher and out further from the jeep. A camera exagerates these dimensions and makes the tire look bigger because it is "in front" of the jeep more.

I know finally right? The ride is much, much better. Especially cornering and such. Well worth it. Its more of a rock guard I think
